    I like the chains and buffalo nickel snaps. Don't wear my "colors" vests much these days for everyday riding. It's to heavy. See picture of it NOT fully decorated in my Avatar.

    Well if you have a vest for a long time and you gain a little weight you might want to get some vest extenders instead of buying a new vest. Extender have snaps on both sides and a length of leather brad or chain between the snaps. Some extenders have snap covers with logos like mine has stainless steel chain and CMA Logo snap covers on both sides.

    Vest extenders were invented because the vests of middle aged riders are made of material that shrinks with age and no longer fits the middle aged bodies.
    So vest extenders allow the rider to continue to use the shrunken vest.

    The wife and I use PGR (Patriot Guard Riders) vest extenders. They are nice when we wear over a riding coat and I also hang a couple dog tags I had made in remembrance of our brothers.

    Originally got vest extenders to let some air though while riding here in the humid Ozarks. You can get them in different lengths to accommodate the sizing as your vest shrinks - mine seemed to shrink faster in the last few years, attributed to the humidity in the South.
    Now I have some custom ones made by a friend from Kansas. One is from the Mid-South MILE (A motorcycle rights conference) One is Triumph and another Harley. I'll have to see if I can get her to do a Spyder. Here is her Ebay store - https://www.ebay.com/sch/freedommann...1&_ipg=&_from=

    >If having this link is not appropriate, let me know and I'll edit the post to remove it, thought I don't see any sponsors that sell extenders<

    I would say $5.00 to $20.00 per extender depending on the type. The CMA ones I have with SS chain and the snap covers were $16.00 each.

    I have found that eating less, exercising more, and losing weig(t is much healthier than best extenders!
